Pseudoscience in IEEE Journals and IEEE Conferences

In the blog
http://www.chem1.com/CQ/magscams.html
we read:

Klaus J. Kronenberg: "Experimental evidence for the effects of magnetic fields on moving water.IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, Vol MAG-21, No. 3, Sept 1985 (2059-2061).
In this paper which is often cited as the classical original investigation of MWT, the author describes the changes in the morphology of calcium carbonate crystals formed by evaporation of water that has been passed through a sequence of several magnetic fields. The effect of the treatment is to change the crystals from a dendritic form to smaller disk-shaped forms (that presumably are less likely to form a scale-- but this is not tested.) The curious thing is that the water seems to "remember" the treatment-- evaporation and crystallization were carried out in a field-free environment. The need for the water to flow past a succession of magnets (up to 16) at a specific velocity prompts Kronenberg to suggest that "the interaction between the magnetic fields and the hydrogen bonds is amplified to the breaking point by resonance." The idea is that the breaking up of the (H2O)n complexes somehow releases dissolved ions that promote nucleation of the smaller crystals. The observed effect lasts for up to two days.
It is difficult to assess this paper. His experimental results are interesting (there are photographs of the crystals), but much of the interpretation strikes me as suspect. Even more off-putting is the quotation attributed to him in the section on agricultural applications.

Other Cases of Pseudo-Science, Garbage Papers, Bogus Publications in IEEE Transactions and IEEE Conferences can be found here:

http://dealingwithcreationisminastronomy.blogspot.com/2014/06/pseudoscience-and-world-view.html 

We read the following:

IEEE and the Electric Universe

Oh, and Mr. Reeve's claim about the IEEE?  As I noted in an earlier post, you might want to take a look at the main page for IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, taking particular note of the disclaimer on the page:
"The Plasma Universe and Plasma Cosmology have no ties to the anti-science blogsites of the holoscience 'electric universe'.
Apparently IEEE's dalliance with EU (specifically the Special Edition in 2007) has proven to be something of an embarrassment.  This is not too much of a surprise since many of the Electric Universe papers which made it into the "Plasma Cosmology Special Edition" of their journal definitely flunked basic electromagnetism (such as noted in Scott Rebuttal. IV. 'Open' magnetic field lines).   This was much like the creationist trick of conning their papers into peer-reviewed journals by subverting the peer-review process, so they can say they have peer-reviewed papers (NCSE: Creationism Slips Into a Peer-Reviewed Journal).

Jeffrey Beall sells strange Protection to some Publishers (having Journals with absolute ... Pseudoscience)

Do you still believe that Jeffrey Beall is a reliable person? Do you think that this pseudoblog of Jeffrey Beall has any reliability?  Jeffrey Beall offers strange Protection to some Publishers (having Journals with absolute ... Pseudoscience). This publisher
http://www.atscience.org/ has a clearly pseudoscience journal International Journal of Mevlana Medical Sciences 
it has also some (according Beall's criteria) clearly predatory journals (because they contain unrelated topics - according to the "scientific criteria of Jeffrey Beall")
International Journal of Applied Mathematics, Electronics and Computers but Jeffrey Beall consider that this OA Publisher is OK!  Reliability of Jeffrey Beall is 0 or better negative.


From the blog: impostorbeall.blogspot.com we read the following:

I also thing that Jeffrey Beall is an impostor and academic criminal.

a)   I recently forwarded an email to him from this Publisher: Advanced Technology & Science (ATScience) http://www.atscience.org/
Actually this publisher is spamming me everyday and promise rapid publication of my papers to its conferences and journals. Also, instead of conference proceedings, they push all the papers from the conferences to their journals which is unnaceptable.

I told to Jeffrey Beall:
"The problem is that they promise automatic publication in their journals, if you attend their conference. See this SPAM So, i believe that this: Advanced Technology & Science (ATScience) http://www.atscience.org is a predatory publisher because of their aggressive spam and because of their promises for automatic publication of whatever to receive to their Journals"

I sent real proofs to Jeffrey Beall!
But Jeffrey Beall refused and still refuses to add http://www.atscience.org/ to his black list.
The reply of  Jeffrey Beall was funny and ridiculous.

"I understand. I think this case is borderline. I would like to monitor this  publisher some more before making any decision. Please send me any additional information if possible.
Thank you,
Jeffrey Beall"

Why? If some Publisher sould be in black list the Advanced Technology & Science (ATScience) http://www.atscience.org/ must be from the beggining.

I imagine then that Jeffrey Beall needs some time to make negotiations for his tariff (bribery) from (ATScience) http://www.atscience.org/ . You can find in several blogs the offshore accounts of Jeffrey Beall in Belize and in some islands of Carribean Sea.

If (ATScience) http://www.atscience.org/  pays the necessary money, then Jeffrey Beall will not include it in his List of Predatory Publishers!

b) A Journal with the title: Global Journal of Science, Engineering, and Technology and web site http://www.gjset.org/ receives publication fees from the authors. 500 - 1000 USD.
The Journal is quite wide, vast and we would expected to be in the List of Jeffrey Beall.
I sent email to Jeffrey Beall  about it and I astonished with the reply:

"Dr. Clement,

I just looked at the Global Journal of Science, Engineering, and Technology. I find the sound annoying, but I don't want to add this journal to my list at this time either. I found some small problems, but not enough to classify it as predatory.

If you think I am mistaken, please let me know.

Thanks,

Jeffrey Beall"

I explained to Jeffrey Beall that according his own criteria, a journal that can publish everything from every science and every scientific field, with a publication fee 500 - 1000 USD must be predatory, because for the same reason, Jeffrey Beall classified as predatory publishers many other honest and legitimate pyblishers.

Jeffrey Beall obviously received his kickback from the Global Journal of Science, Engineering, and Technology and did not clasify them as Predatory.

What a Shame Jeffrey Beall! To destroy honest and legitimate publishers and to promote vanity press for revenue in your offshore accounts!

Dr. Clement,

I just looked at the Global Journal of Science, Engineering, and Technology . I find the sound annoying, but I don't want to add this journal to my list at this time either. I found some small problems, but not enough to classify it as predatory.

If you think I am mistaken, please let me know.

Thanks,

Appendix III: Petre Dini did not pay the "tax of shame" to Jeffrey Beall! I googled Crook + Jeffrey Beall and I found these not very good things for Jeffrey Beall
 From: http://mailinglists.scilab.org/I-am-also-victim-of-Jeffrey-Beall-td4027931.html

My name is Petre Dini and I am the President of IARIA, www.iaria.org
I am also victim of Jeffrey Beall 
Actually, this pseudo-scholar Jeffrey Beall is a thug. He uses black lists to create profit. Also he is involved in tax evation and money laundry.
I asked him several times to remove IARIA from his black list and he promised me to re-analyze the site www.iaria.org
There is not any real reason to have our institute IARIA in his pseudo-list.
The cost to re-analyze the portal of my organization www.iaria.org was 100,000 USD,
Exactly "re-analyze" was the verb that he used in our phone conversation. Why re-analyze? Who is he that analyzes or re-analyzes Academic organizations?
What are his qualifications. I am professor in Electrical Engineering with many publications (in IARIA and outside IARIA). Who is this pseudo-professor - money hungry thug?

Anyway, Jeffrey Beall gave us two accounts in Tax Heaven Countries: One account in a Bank of St. Vincent and another account in Belize.
We do not pay 100,000 USD for IARIA and so IARIA is still now in his list.

I estimate that Hindawi has paid to pseudo-professor Jeffrey Beall something like 1500000 (1 million and half) $

Somebody must report Jeffrey Beall' activities in American Authorities.

Anybody can kill him. 

If somebody kills him, he will absolve the Humanity from this monster.

Thanks

Assoc Prof Chen Chun-Hsien posted a comment in our blog:

I also agree that Jeffrey Beall is a crook. He asked from Cambridge Scholar Publisher the amount of 10000 dollars. Cambridge Scholar Publisher paid to Jeffrey Beall 10000 dollars and the saved their name from Beall's list. My name is Chun-Hsien Chen, I am Assoc.Professor in the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. IAENG fake conferences' organizers have just added my name in their committee of the apparently fake "IAENG 2013 ICAIA Conference" ...without my knowledge. I conclude that IAENG conferences are quite junk, fake, bogus and ... trush. I strongly recommend my students as well as any scholar not to publish with IAENG. Assoc.Prof.Chun-Hsien Chen Email: MCHCHEN@ntu.edu.sg Phone:  (+65)6790 4888 Office: N3.2-01-06

Googling "Fake Conferences" we found 2 interesting blogs about an academic scamp.

iaria-highsci.blogspot.com
The title of this blog is: Jeffrey Beall: A Predatory (money hungry) Librarian

The other blog is
jeffreybeall.blogspot.com
The title of this blog is: Jeffrey Beall: a crook is among us. Jeffrey Beall: a tacky felon is among us.

I recently made an inquiry to Jeffrey Beall (the Denver, USA librarian who runs a webpage where he slanders and insults about 500 publishing houses), whether he, Jeffrey Beall himself, has the ability to solve the simple math equation 5x+3 = 0.


Jeffrey Beall replied to my first email, that he has never studied even the simplest form of Math. Meaning that he doesn’t know what “equation” means (he has never even seen equations like 5x+3 = 0, 3x*x + 7x -4 =0 etc), neither does he know what “Derivative” or “Integral” mean.

Jeffrey Beall told me that he has a Bachelor in Spanish and English language. This of course didn’t stop him blacklisting hundreds of houses that publish Math, Physics, Computer Science, Engineering, Economics, Biology, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Space Science etc Journals. That from a man who isn’t even able to solve the simple equation 5x+3 = 0, and who doesn’t know what Derivative or Integral mean.

Recently, Jeffrey Beall included in his “black list” an old, big Academic Publishing House, with several, historic Journals in Math, Physics, Computer Science, Engineering, Economics (some of which have been indexed in ISI and SCOPUS), and that because, according to Jeffrey Beal, they had copied the… Maxwell Equations from a 2007 article.

Obviously, since Jeffrey Beall doesn’t know how to solve the equation 5x+3 = 0, and since he doesn’t know what Derivative and Integral mean, he has zero knowledge when it comes to Electricity or Physics and has never seen the Maxwell Equations (not even in their most basic form).

As expected from somebody who is entirely clueless regarding even elementary Math and Physics, he considered the Maxwell Equations found in the Journal to be plagiarized… from a 2007 paper.

With a Bachelor in Spanish and English in his CV, Jeffrey Beall passes judgment even to Medicine, Biology, Chemistry etc Journals and articles, while he is fully aware that he’s never attended a University course on which nucleotides make up the DNA molecule, he’s never heard what enzyme, catalysis, proteins etc are, and if one asks him what pH is, he’ll be completely ignorant.

However, in his bizarre blog, this person has declared himself a critic of everyone and everything. He blacklists publishing houses (many of which having journals and conferences indexed in ISI, SCOPUS, Compendex, ACM etc), he includes stand-alone journals in “black lists”, slanders Editors-in-Chief, Authors etc. Of course he does all that selectively, following a certain logic of his, which will be analyzed below.
In a later email that I sent him, I asked him to comment on why he includes a small publishing house in his black list because “they copied Maxwell’s Equations from a 2007 paper” (poor Jeffrey Beall doesn’t know that Maxwell’s Equations are taught in Universities’ first year elementary physics), while at the same time he excludes IEEE, who have over 85 SCIgen machine-generated fake conference papers published and indexed.

(See: A 2013 scientometrics paper demonstrated that at least 85 SCIgen machine-generated papers have been published by IEEE. The Paper has been published in Springer Verlag:http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs11192-012-0781-y
Download the full paper from:
http://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/docs/00/71/35/55/PDF/0-FakeDetectionSci-Perso.pdf)
He also didn’t respond to the question why he didn’t include Elsevier in his black list, who were revealed to have been publishing 6 Medical Journals between 2000 and 2005 with fake articles and studies, that were funded by pharmaceutical companies, in order to scientifically prove that their products were superior to their competitors’. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elsevier
or
http://legacy.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/2009/05/elsevier-confirms-6-fake-journals-more.html

In a third email I asked him where his moral and academic responsibility stands, since if due to him including some publishing houses in black lists, those houses reduce or cease their activity (due to his immoral slandering), hundreds of jobs will be lost and families will end up in the street. Naturally, despite my repeated emails, Jeffrey Beall never replied.

There are also rumors on the internet that some publishing houses, like Hindawi and Elsevier, pay Jeffrey Beall on a yearly basis in order not to be included in his black list. This looks like heavy taxing that the publisher is asked to pay annually to Jeffrey Beall, and, as we’ll see below, part of this tax ends up in the Denver University funds.

Actually, Hindawi was in Jeffrey Beall’s black list a year ago. Then, after negotiations, Jeffrey Beall placed them in a watching list (i.e. an “under observation” list), and eventually completely removed them.

Just like Jeffrey Beall himself mentioned in his blog, Hindawi’s people visited him in Denver and offered him “explanations”. After that, Jeffrey Beall gradually removed Hindawi from his black list.
Why, Mr. Jeffrey Beall, did you agree to meet with Hindawi’s representatives in your office in Denver, when Hindawi was black listed? What did you talk about, Mr. Jeffrey Beall? Hindawi, as mentioned on their website, has an annual turnover of $6 million.

Couldn’t they use part of that money to pay off Jeffrey Beall?

Furthermore, in his blog, Jeffrey Beall has posted a photo of Hindawi’s headquarters, which he calls “House of Spam”. So, Mr. Jeffrey Beall, why isn’t Hindawi in your black list, when among your fundamental black listing reasons, like you mention in your blog, is spam?

Having read all that, you can draw your own conclusions on who Jeffrey Beall is and what his real motives behind his publishing house and scientific organization black listing blog are. Houses and Organizations that Jeffrey Beall calls “Predatory Publishers”.

Maybe it’s time to talk about Predatory Librarians, Mr. Jeffrey Beall. About librarians who target Open Access Journals, especially because the open, online PDF policy deprives librarians (like Jeffrey Beall) from the possibility of receiving kickbacks from publishing houses.

To those who are not aware, it is known that several publishing houses paid- and pay-off librarians (like Jeffrey Beall), in order to get their libraries to subscribe to those houses.

Meaning that, in order for a certain University, Research Center, Company to buy some books or subscribe to some journals, it is common knowledge that librarians receive money under the table from the respective publishing houses. It is therefore natural and understandable for this kind of librarians (Jeffrey Beall, for instance) to fight Open Access Journals and Open Access Publishing Houses, since they 
a) lose their kickbacks, 
b) lose their power and influence in the library, as well as the University.

I’ve saved all my email exchange with Jeffrey Beall, along with their headers/source code, and I will soon upload them to various websites. I need everyone’s help though, by sending me emails (to the email address found at the bottom) and exchanging information on Jeffrey Beall’s scandalous behavior.

And one last question to Jeffrey Beall: How can a librarian WITHOUT a Ph.D. be an Assistant Professor at the University of Denver, Mr. Jeffrey Beall?

Could it be that Jeffrey Beall bribed older professors, using the abundance of money that he is said to possess? 

Could it be that Jeffrey Beall threatened that if they don’t vote for him, he’ll include all journals where they have papers published in his black list, and slander them on the internet?

Or is it that they were so much impressed by his research? Actually, Mr. Jeffrey Beall, what is your scientific research? Your scientific research as a “real scientist” that is, Mr. Jeffrey Beall. What publications do you have, besides slandering, insulting and discredit hundreds of scientific organizations and publishing houses? What do you teach at the University of Denver Mr. Jeffrey Beall?

Is there really any course (real scientific course) that you can teach, Mr. Jeffrey Beall, besides calling publishing houses and scientific organizations “predatory”?

 It doesn’t look like it, Mr. Jeffrey Beall. No matter how hard we looked, we didn’t find any courses taught by you at the University of Denver. 

Neither on your personal webpage, Mr. Jeffrey Beall, nor on your money-making blog, nor even on the University of Denver website is there any mention about courses taught by you.

So, since you do absolutely no scientific research, and you don’t even teach pre-graduate or post-graduate students, what is your role at the University of Denver, Mr. Jeffrey Beall?

Does the University of Denver pay you a salary, Mr. Jeffrey Beall, or do you pay the University to let you bear the title of Assistant Professor? 

A title that you really do not deserve, as you have no Ph.D., no actual research work and do no teaching whatsoever. It is a shame for the University of Denver to have professors like you, Jeffrey Beall.

Or is running a blog that slanders everyone and everything considered scientific research? 

It most certainly is not, Mr. Jeffrey Beall.

Could it be, however, an applied money-making project for you and your university, Mr. Jeffrey Beall?

 (By the way, why should a small publishing house from some place in India, which cannot attract papers, nor editorial board members, from western universities, be in your black list Mr. Jeffrey Beall? In this case, you should also black list all non-US and non-European universities. Of course there exist first-rate universities, like Harvard, MIT, Berkeley, Cambridge. Should all other universities be in a black list? Is this your logic “Professor” Beall? Furthermore, you condemn any new publishing house, as it is natural for them to not have papers and not be indexed as soon as they launch, but has to deal with you, who, like a vulture, immediately includes them in your black list for those reasons.)

I would greatly appreciate your response, Mr. Jeffrey Beal. And I would also appreciate feedback from anyone who agrees with me. 

My aim is to create a network of true scientists and expose “Professor”, “Academic Teacher” and, above all, “Researcher” Jeffrey Beall (this science jack-of-all-trades, who doesn’t know a first-degree algebraic equation, derivatives, integrals, elementary Physics and Chemistry laws, etc)
Thank you

Shame for IEEE, Springer Verlag, ACM, AIP, WorldScientific, Taylor and Francis, Elsevier

For more than 8 years our blog has identified that IEEE, Springer Verlag, ACM, AIP (American Institute of Physics), WorldScientific (Singapore), Taylor and Francis, Elsevier conferences are fake, bogus, scam, sham, mock and predatory. Now we have additional Proofs:

The IEEE SCIgen Papers were 85 two years ago:

Several Blogs (included netdriver.blogpost.com) reported this. In 2014, these SCIgen papers in IEEE were 120.
Let''s start with the IEEE SCIGen Fake Papers of 2009. What's happened in 2009:In 2009, we had received the following email from a girl that was working in IARIA's secretariat.

IEEE Computer Society Press sent it in January 17 (2009) to all the IEEE Sponsored, Co-Sponsored Conferences as well as to conferences
that publish their Proceedings with IEEE CS Press. It is impressive how many IEEE conferences are based on a review on the Abstract!.

date Sat, Jan 17, 2009 at 4:03 AMsubject Confidential: Important CPS Message Regarding Fraudulent Machine-Generated Paper Submissions

TO: CPS Clients FROM: Evan Butterfield, Director of Products and Services RE: Fraudulent Machine-Generated Paper Submissions (CONFIDENTIAL) DATE: 16 January 2009
The IEEE Computer Society (CS) has evidence that multiple (IEEE) conferences are receiving machine-generated papers. In two cases, conferences have actually accepted an obviously fraudulent submission. This is a serious issue that threatens the credibility of your conference, the quality of the digital library, and the reputation of both the IEEE and CS. It requires your immediate attention. Please take this opportunity to ensure that your peer review processes are being followed, and adapt to any new requirements that may be communicated by the IEEE or the Computer Society. No conference published by CPS should rely on an abstract review. It is very important that you review carefully the full text of all papers submitted to your conference. If you have already accepted papers, your program committee should review the full text again. While CPS staff will be conducting random spot-checks of conference papers in the publishing queue, we are relying on you to authenticate the content of your proceedings. Any papers that were not actually presented at your conference need to be brought to our attention, and should receive close review. In known cases, the machine-generated origin is obvious from a reading of the first few paragraphs of the paper; the abstracts are human-generated and do not indicate the quality of the paper itself. In the past, papers have been submitted by “Herbert Schlangemann,” but be mindful that the perpetrator of this fraud will change the approach over time. In the event you discover any evidence of questionable content or behavior, please communicate that to us immediately along with an action plan for addressing the problem. Thank you for your help in maintaining the quality of our products.

A victim of Jeffrey Beall is speaking

We found this comment today http://fakeconference.blogspot.com/2014/01/one-student-is-enough-to-create-2-bogus.html#comment-form and we want to share it with you

Many good publishers are characterized as Predatory by Jeffrey Beall. But they are not. On the other hand, really Predatory Publishers are not included in Jeffrey beall (impostor) list.

Hindawi journals, these predatory journals, these piranhas of open access publishing are not inside the Jeffrey Beall list. Hindawi has recently launched with a new journal: Scientifica. http://www.hindawi.com/journals/scientifica/

Jeffrey Beall knows this journal, because it is reported in his blog ( I learned it from his blog). In this journal you can publish every kind of paper without real review. In their site they claim acceptance rate 73% while a week ago they claimed 85%. Even an 85% acceptance rate in an international journal implies that this journal is bogus. Jeffrey Beall had had Hindawi in his list long time ago. Now, Hindawi, this piranha, does not have any problem to charge authors with 1700 USD per paper. Jeffrey Beall protects it and this strange protection generates questionmarks. Can we know if Hindawi paid money for Jeffrey Beall?

We have also received this comment:

I have visited the site: http://jeffreybeall.blogspot.fr

They have a nice post: 

IDOSI, MEDWELL and BENTHAM OPEN have several journals in ISI Web of Knowledge, but Jeffrey Beall hates them and include them in its black list.
Who knows better the ISI (Thomson) with thousand of scientists and analysts or the felon Jeffrey Beall?

One student is enough to create 3 bogus - fake "societies". A student (yes, a Student) has just created 3 bogus predatory "societies".

One student (yes, one Student alone!) created 3 bogus predatory "societies". His name is Amin Daneshmand Malayeri. See his signature at the end of the next Spam.
Amin Daneshmand Malayeri is a Student in Iran, but created 3 bogus, predatory organizations
www.iamset.org
www.dutchacademy.eu and now sends daily spam to us.

Obviously 
Amin Daneshmand Malayeri  lifted the name www.iaria.org (IARIA is the organization of Petre Dini, by the way Petre Dini refused to pay money to Jeffrey Beall and IARIA exists still now in the fake (pseudo)list of the crook Jeffrey Beall, google: Petre Dini Jeffrey Beall) and created the www.iarias.org

Motivation: MONEY, only MONEY
Alert: The Fake, Dummy, Predatory, Scam Organization of Amin Daneshmand Malayeri www.dutchacademy.eu currently offers (bogus) Diplomas (Bachelor, Master and Ph.D.) also. Be careful, these Diplomas of Amin Daneshmand Malayeri are fake Diplomas and are not recognized. Ignore Dutch Academy of Management. There is not such an academy in Germany, but only in imagination of Amin Daneshmand Malayeri. In his spam he uses unreasonably and illegally the NAME and the LOGO of ISI Thomson Reuters, Compendex in Engineering Village and Scopus. See bellow!!!
He claims also that his Journals are in ISI:
http://www.iamset.org/notice/399.html
Simply, his journals are without Editors, without Topics, without committees and without articles. Obviously, these new journals are not indexed in any place and are not in ISI.
He uses also the Logo of the old organization www.wessex.ac.uk here:

http://www.iamset.org/notice/399.html
without any permision. The web pages of these 3 fake, bogus, annoying "shops" of Malayeri are also full of grammatical errors.

Spam from Malayeri follows. Enjoy his 3 fake-bogus-mock societies that sponsor his dummy conferences:
